Easter scaled down

Almost as fascinating as the real thing are the miniature versions of the pasos that are paraded at Easter. Many are produced as models to show what the finished article will look like. They are made to gain approval from the cofradia before embarking on the full scale paso. Others are just marvels in minature made for the sake of it.

At 7:30pm today in the Exhibition Hall at Vista Alegre, a display of miniatures created by Alfonso Pascual Ruiz and Pedro Manuel Grimao Melgar will be on show. The exhibition, which is described as the largest collection of Easter, will be open until the April 22nd.
